VA Stops Collections |From Dead Veterans

     WASHINGTON (CN) – The Department of Veterans Affairs plans to stop collecting debts from a VA benefit program when “the indebted individual is a member of the Armed Forces or a veteran who dies as a result of injury … during a period of hostilities after Sept. 11, 2001,” and says it will refund what it collected after the deaths.

     The same proposed rule also would suspend or terminate collection of debts owed to the VA by those who died while serving on active duty as a member of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, or Coast Guard during a period when the Coast Guard is operating as a service in the Navy, and to refund amounts collected after the individual’s death.
     This action implements certain provisions of the Combat Veterans Debt Elimination Act of 2008 and of the Veterans’ Benefits Improvement Act of 2008.
